A would-be thief received a frosty welcome at a Wendy's in Yuba City Monday evening.
Around 5:30 p.m. on Christmas Day, a man walked into the fast food restaurant with a knife in hand and a pillowcase covering his head.
While the suspect was standing at the front counter a customer walked up behind him and struck him on the back on the head with a chair.
After getting hit, the suspect ran out of the restaurant and jumped into a white sedan that was waiting nearby.
He did not get away with any money.
